Review:

...many of the chapters will achive landmark status. * Administrative Science Quarterly * I congratulate the editors, Nystrom and Starbuck, and the publishers as well. * American Political Science Review * ...the reader... can rely for many years to come on these two volumes as an excellent base-line. * Organization Studies * ...no self-respecting scholar of organizations should be without this book. * Journal of Management Studies * At first glance this handbook is intimidating... But despite its fearsome look, the handbook... will be helpful to managers seriously contemplating involvement in a design change. * Harvard Business Review * ...in breadth and in the timeliness of many of the chapters, the handbook probably surpasses earlier handbooks. * Contemporary Sociology * The Handbook is a monumental achievement. It is stylish in format, articulate in expression, panoramic in scope, and provocative in discussion. * American Journal of Sociology * The Handbook is an important milestone in the development of organizational analysis. Those who profess to be experts in the macro aspects of organizations need to be familiar with the major themes represented in this two volume series. * Academy of Management Review * ...the handbook is an outstanding piece of work. It will be useful for academics and practitioners as a comprehensive source of reference. * Leadership and Organization Development Journal *
